First say to yourself what you would be: and then do what you have to do. —Eptctetus—
We often tell ourselves we want to be more peaceful, more in touch with our Higher Power. In other words, we want to become
more spiritual. Acting as spiritual people is hard. Tho often, we choose the easy way. We make a nasty comment even if we know it’ll only make things worse. We say we have a program for living. Are we living our program? We’ll find the answer in our behavior. Sober people act in sober ways. We attend meetings regularly. We study spiritual ideas. We work to bring joy to our lives and the lives of others. Just as we know a good friend by the way he or she behaves, we know a sober person by the way he or she behaves.
Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me be a person whose words and actions match up.
Today’s Action: Today I’ll take an inventory of my actions to see if they are those of a sober person.
